Many bike and walking trails - 3/5/2014
There is a vast network of bike and walking trails thoughout the city and neighborhoods. 40% of the city is slated to remain green so there are many trees, parks and undeveloped land. Centally located is the downtown which is always vibrant, walkable, safe and pretty upscale. All ages reside here, schools are great and people are Read More

Reston cost of living - 7/9/2012
Reston is a wonderful place to live but you pay for the amenities in HOA fees. In this economy, with gas, food, health care and taxes going up, I am trying to move from Reston so I will not have to worry about paying the next property tax bill, Read More

Good and Bad - 10/19/2011
We've lived and owned a townhouse in Reston for 4 1/2 years, and lived in Chantilly for 4 years prior to that. It has good and bad points. First the good: variety of cultures represented, variety of types of families (working, stay at home,married, single families, etc), 15 nice pools to choose from in the summer (part of being part of the home owners associations), lots of kid friendly activities, relatively clean, nice parks and walking trails, driving to DC on weekends isn't bad as long as you avoid Rt66, and it is one of the few areas in Northern VA that kept trees (you'll find this in Arlington too). Now the bad: we pay two home owners association fees, one to Reston and one to our neighborhood (not worth it for what you get, especially in this economy), some public schools are okay but some are bad (recommend doing research), not many good choices for preschools that are affordable (we pay 1150 for a preschool (very reasonable for this area) and 1250 for an in-home daycare for Read More

Actually we live in Potomac Falls, but that isn't - 3/1/2011
We like it here a lot, the downfall of course is traffic. Driving 16 miles to Tysons Corner could take you 20 minutes at 6am or 1.5 hours if you leave at 7am. So be prepared for lots of time in your car is you have to commute or drive Read More

Reston VA - 2/24/2010
Amazing Suburb of Northern VA. Great access to anything you need/want. Trails, pools, community all first class. However, very pricey as is the DC Metro Read More

Political Diversity - 10/14/2009
While the cost of living is high, it's wonderful to live in an area with political and ethnic diversity, unlike the small town in Washington state where we used to live that was overwhelmingly conservative. This is so much Read More

Reston, Sterling, Ashburn...the kid triangle - 6/24/2009
Yes, kids rule. Families rule. This area is not for singles or couple without kids. I totally agree about the endless bombardment of misbehaved kids. And it's getting worse! Reston didn't start out this way. There was suppose to be balance in this planned community. A middle class. A place for seniors and young families alike. It retains some of that, but the influx of wealthier people has made this a have and have-not place. Sterling is worse in terms of children. Ashburn might as well be one big maternity ward. Adults in quest of some quiet cafe or a place to enjoy an adult beverage or two will hate it here, unless of course they have kids. I gave up on going to a nearby sports pub because parents have turned the joint in Disney World. Why they need to invade adult bars is a mystery because there are plenty of kid and family-oriented eateries in these three towns. My feeling is that people are so wealthy here that they think they can do and have it all. That they are indeed entitled Read More
